In my opinion, error pages are just there to tell you that either you or your computer (or maybe even my server) made some sort of mistake. Well, alot of web designers are very ordinary and just throw a "404" in your face and expect you to be happy. Yeah, I don't think so. Other web designers see it as a golden opportunity to show just how clever and creative they can be with crazy images, funny headlines and all that. Sort of like easter eggs in software. Well, sorry to disappoint. Rather, this web designer is merely informing you that an error was made. Hey, no one is being blamed here. It could be me, could be you, or could be a mouse gnawing through the cables somewhere. Suffice it to say a problem has been encountered. So what shall we do? You could move along to the home page (just click that logo in the upper left corner) and be glad you're finished with all of this. But is it really over? After all, a mistake was made (me/you/mouse). Isn't there more to the matter? Well, we could check the error logs on the server. Those are moderately informative and let you know if some wacknut is trying to turn your server into low grade ground beef. Usually the logs just show other minor errors that have occurred, quite similar to this one perhaps. No, I'm talking about finding out what really went wrong. For that we need to take a step back and view matters from a higher vantage point. Here's what's wrong: Too many people think they're the center of the universe and don't give a dang about anyone else. Hey, we're all entitled to some "me" time, sure. But what about when you're in the left turn lane and someone slowly starts to force their way in front of you? Sure, they may have been a jerk about cutting in like that. And if you're the center of the universe Mr. Universe, then to you they were a jerk. But if you are more thoughtful and do really care about other people, then you consider the alternatives. Maybe they were distracted by some bad news they recently received. Or they're new in town and didn't realize the turn would come up so soon. Maybe they just bought a new car (I love those new Subaru Outbacks) and didn't want to cut over too quickly. Instead of jumping to conclusions and assuming they're a jerk, there may be a deeper reason for why they did what they did. So, the classy thing to do is just let them in. Don't get all insulted and try to defend your turf. It's just a left turn lane fer cryin' out loud. Let 'em in and consider that your little act of kindness for the day. Think about it. You start going Braveheart and your blood pressure goes up, their blood pressure goes up and no one's happy at all. Stay calm, enjoy the beauty of that single moment of human interaction when you actually let someone get away with a minor infraction and could care less about it. You've got more important things to worry about anyways. Like why the hell did I land on this page. Let's just be like the left turn lane here. We'll both let it slide and get on with life. Who can't appreciate that?
